Saffron Summer to open second Surrey restaurant

Chessington-based Indian restaurant Saffron Summer has announced the opening of its second restaurant in Surrey. 

The restaurant will open in Reigate on 24 March and will occupy the former site of The Clove restaurant at 15 Church Street.

The kitchen will be led by executive head chef, Awanish Roy, who trained at the Oberoi Hotels in India, before moving to London to work at Cinnamon Club, Roti Chai and Chai Ki restaurants in London.

 The menu will feature Saffron summer signature dishes such as its authentic ‘Goan wild boar vindaloo’, ‘Chingri Malai from Calcutta’, ‘Keralan Cod Fish Moily’, ‘Indo-Chinese Curry Leaf Calamari’ and ‘Street Food Jazz’.

Owner Ralph Sousa, who has owned restaurants and hotels in Portugal and Goa for 20 years, said: “Many Chessington customers travelling from Reigate have been imploring us to open in the town – even alerting us to possible sites. 

“I came and researched the area, loved the vibe and am convinced the locals will appreciate our unique modern take on classic regional dishes from the sub continent.”
